Do you know what’s true

Posted: May 27, 2015 in Uncategorized

after the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 in the United States of America, the United States went to war with Iraq. The war was then and is now a contentious matter. I am not sure if you will find a Nother current issue that has opponents and proponents that are so adamant about it. Everyone who has lived through the attacks in the war has an opinion and they’ll tell it to you. There is nothing wrong with having an opinion. There is something wrong when you have decided that your opinion is the truth.

The truth is, the actionable state of a matter or lining up with facts. When it comes to war the truth is it’s complicated. War is violent and complicated. More is different from different perspectives. War is hell. War happens. There is a movie called fury. In the movie fury, Brad Pitt plays a tank captain for the United States Army. Brad Pitt tells his men, “ideas are peaceful, history is violent”. I haven’t seen the movie but I absolutely love this quote. I love it because it Atlee describes The history of humanity on this planet. When people argue for and against war, we would do well to remember that the argument is idealistic and that because of this the truth of the matter is that no one knows if the war is just or good. It is easy to be tempted into believing that we know what the truth is about a matter, however this TempTatian should be avoided because, If it isn’t we may never learn the truth of the matter.Edit
